This itinerary begins in Lusaka where you'll be met by our representative in the arrivals hall who will assist you to the light aircraft bound for Mfuwe.

In the arrivals hall (or just outside as the terminal is tiny) you will meet a driver who will assist you with luggage into the transfer vehicle and drive you through Mfuwe town and into South Luangwa National Park.

Game drive enroute to your first safari camp.  On arrival, spend 2 nights at Luwi Camp on a fully inclusive stay with walking and game drives morning and afternoons/early evenings.

Day 2: Luwi Camp full day safari

It's an early start as you head off on either game drive or walking safari with fellow guests and some of the best walking guides in Africa. You'll return to camp for brunch and some time out to yourself. In the afternoon, enjoy refreshments before heading off on game drive as the African sun sets.  Return to camp for dinner under the stars.

Day 3: Camp to Camp walk

After breakfast, it's time to pack your day bag and head off on foot to your next camp, Nsolo Bush Camp. Spend 1 night here and savour the experience of remoteness and sense of accomplishment.

Day 4: Camp to Camp walk

This morning, you'll walk (or game drive is available) to Kakuli Camp. Enjoy two nights here with game drives and walks on offer.

Day 5: Full day on safari

It's an early start as you head off on either game drive or walking safari with fellow guests and some of the best walking guides in Africa. You'll return to camp for brunch and some time out to yourself.

Day 6: Mfuwe - Lower Zambezi

After breakfast, you'll bid South Luangwa goodbye and head off with a driver to the airport. Here, board a light aircraft to Lusaka and onwards to Lower Zambezi for four nights. You'll be met at the airstrip by a guide and assisted with luggage into the 4x4 open sided vehicle. Transfer by road to the fantastic Chongwe River Camp. Savour four nights on a fantastic fully inclusive safari with game drives, canoeing, boating, island and cultural visits and more.

Days 7 - 9: Lower Zambezi full day safaris

There is so much to choose from in the Lower Zambezi and your camp management team and guides will chat with you to determine what you want to experience. Enjoy morning and afternoon safari activities and make sure you experience land and water wildlife! Dinners will be a treat as you listen to hippos grunting and lions calling.

Day 10: Lower Zambezi - Livingstone

After your morning safari activity, it's time to check out and head off with your guide to the airstrip.  Catch a light aircraft flight to Livingstone (sometimes this is via Lusaka, depending on time of year).  On arrival into Livingstone, disembark and collect your bags. Make your way to the arrivals hall where our transfer driver will be waiting. Transfer with fellow guests to the luxurious Tongabezi for two nights in a cottage room with all meals and activities included.
